Is There Affordable Housing in Carlsbad CA?

Real Estate Agent with Davis Coastal Properties BRE#00788648

Carlsbad CA is a very desirable city to call home. With locations on or near the beach commanding higher prices - how can one afford to live here?

The solution over 500 homeowners have found requires that one person be over 55 years and the other at least 45. Lakeshore Gardens is the Premier 55+ Gated Community near Ponto Beach in Carlsbad CA.

Sorry - but that eliminates many buyers who are not 55+ or may still have kids at home.

The average sales price of home near our community is $918,000. The average sales price in Lakeshore Gardens in 2016 was $167,934 for a 2 bedroom 2 bath home. Currently there are homes For Sale from $139,000 to $365,000.

Hey Steve, might want to recheck your link to LSGBlog - it's broken (but I got there anyway).

Interesting that it got me thinking about whther or not I'm willing to live in a community like that.  Right now I have 3500 sq feet on 15 acres but I'm starting to think about downsizing.
